Today I have been fasting since early morning and planed for jagaram whole night. At 11PM toady I got a thought to visit maha shiva lingam at gymkhana grounds, secunderabad along with my family. We visited the place immediately.
The place was fully crowded and long Q to have darshan of maha shiva lingam. Somebody is doing archanas and some are doing abhisekham. We just had free darshanam. We felt wonderful after reaching nearer to the lingam. The lingam is so beautiful and black in colour. This is the tallest shiva lingam throughout india. This is the first time built this type of lingam throughout country.
This maha shivalingam was funded by sri Vijayanandanadha guru seva samithi charitable trust. The total cost of this temporary construction of this shiva lingam is 1 crore 50 lakhs. As per the news, the public allowed from 06th February 2010 to 20th February 2010.
The free darshanam completed in 20 minutes. We have not faced any problem in darshanam. The arrangement for Q is very good. There are two steps in front of the lingam which are useful for clear darshanam of abhisekham performed by other devotees. The organization is very good. I suggest this place to visit once before 20th February 2010. This lingam will be removed after 20th.
The program is conducting by Jagathguru sri sri sri Siddeswarananda Bharathi Mahaswamy of the Siddeswari Peetham, Kurthalam.
We came back to home within 2 hours time after free darshanam of maha shivalingam. So you people can plan for visiting this place. We should support the people who are conducting this type of programs at least by visiting once. I am appreciating the work done by the people who have built this big shiva lingam. The decoration and lighting is superb. We are allowed to take photographs of the shivalingam without any objection. There are so many photographers are taking photo of shiva lingam along with devotee just for 50 Rs. The car parking is at free of cost. There are many stalls with different products and Tiffin centers. We can enjoy at least 2 hours here with the family. This is the wonderful place to visit.
